Selection of geared hub motors

Hub motors are divided into gearless hubs and geared hubs, in which the performance of geared hub motors is better in terms of load and hill climbing compared to gearless motors, so they are mostly used in pulling trucks. But different vehicles have different requirements for hubs, so choosing the right geared hub motor needs to be considered for a variety of factors. The right hub motor needs to be matched to the truck's load, work requirements, and terrain conditions.

Selection factors

The first thing you need to know is the vehicle's specifications. The specifications of the vehicle affect the power and torque selection of the motor, which provides a guide to the appropriate power rating and torque capacity. For example, what is the maximum load capacity of the vehicle, the average daily operating hours, the terrain of the roads it travels over, and how much hill climbing is required? Heavier loads or longer jobs require motors with higher continuous power and torque outputs. This is enough to select the torque, power, and hill climbing capability of the motor needed. Most of Lunyee's customers for pulling trucks choose hub motors with a torque of 100 Nm or more.


The speed of the vehicle is also an important factor to consider when choosing a motor. Some of the pulling trucks are slower and therefore do not require high speeds, but some of the high speed geared hub motors have higher speeds and are used for high speed vehicles. You need to choose the right speed for your vehicle based on your needs.


When the above factors are determined, it is necessary to choose the appropriate accessories. The controller needs to match the voltage power, and the handlebar also needs to keep the voltage consistent. If there is no voltage, the handlebar can basically be used. LCD in addition to the need to maintain the same voltage, but also need to confirm whether the communication with the controller is consistent, sometimes even if the appearance of the same may not match, so it is best to support the purchase.


Taking these factors into consideration, you can choose the right hub motor. If you have other requirements for the hub, such as bearings, shafts, reinforced housings, etc., you can always contact us to solve your problems.
